Description

The Withings Activité Steel is the sleek sport watch that falls between the Sapphire and Pop. The only differentiation between these devices is the design. It tracks your activity, sleep and swim activities on a daily basis. It’s 5 ATM water rating makes it possible to submerge your device for up to 50 meters. The smaller dial on the watch displays your daily progress towards your goal, but this doesn’t display the exact numeric step count. In order to see exactly how many steps you have you’ll have to log into your app. One downfall in their algorithm is that it won’t detect activities such as running without consistent movement, meaning this device won’t work well for interval training.
